The Unclaimed Property Professionals' Organization is a association of unclaimed property professionals and service providers "dedicated to advancing industry best practices for unclaimed property practitioners." Unlike other trade groups that focus on a particular profession or industry (e.g., manufacturers, banks, healthcare) the UPPO is group of unclaimed property professionals (as the name suggests) across the whole spectrum of industries.
The UPPO holds many events throughout the year, but the most popular is the organization's annual conference. This year's conference will be March 24-27 in San Diego, California. The Conference brings together professionals and experts in a wide variety of areas, and offers dozens of presentations, educational program and industry-specific roundtables.* The Conference also offers separate learning tracks for beginner, intermediate and advanced unclaimed property professionals. There is something for everyone. Additional information can be found at the UPPO's conference page here.
